Unfortunately, through regularly scheduled means of transportation, flying is likely to be the cheapest option for you. Sites like kayak might help you reduce the price, and you can specify direct flights, skipping out the US. You can look at things like freighter travel, where you use a cargo ship to get down, but otherwise your only other 'hitchhiking' ...

The answer to this is: Fairly. I didn't use a colectivo in the end myself - for our group and distance, a Taxi only cost 30 MXN more. The walk from the highway is real, but probably only 500m - 800m or so. There is a sidewalk on the highway overpass (if you need to get to/from that side of the road). Once over the highway there is a footpath seperated from ...

2-3pm is not rush hour in Tokyo. However, many central subway stations in Tokyo will require you to climb flights of stairs to enter, exit or transfer lines, which is not much fun with large bags, and while there's usually a single elevator somewhere, this can add a lengthy detour. If you can tell me exactly where you're going, I can try to recommend a ...

Yes, there is a direct underground tunnel connecting the two stations (three, actually: Keisei, JR and Tokyo Metro). You will need to exit and re-enter through the fate gates at both ends, but if you're using a Suica/Pasmo smart card the fare calculation will be automatic. (courtesy Google) The vast majority of nearby stations in Tokyo are similarly ...

It seems almost all taxis in Frankfurt accept credit cards today. However, you should not expect that everywhere in Germany. I would recommend to ask if credit cards are accepted, when you order a taxi by phone or just go to a free taxi. Note that there may be a small extra fee when paying by credit card. About ATMs: While all ATMs accept credit cards, ...

mytaxi works pretty well in all larger cities I've tested so far. There definitely is an English version and I like the app's design, e.g. the fact that you can see the current position of the driver and know when to step out of the door.

The taxi.eu app works in Germany and is localized.

Frankfurt is massively cosmopolitan and its taxi services are generally ready to work with you in English. This would hold true for locales extending north to the Taunus. Generally you would only need to carry one or two numbers anyway. You mentioned Seligenstadt and Oberstshasen, the former being further out and not a sure bet unless you plan ahead. ...

According to Visit Greenland, at the time of writing there are no ferries to Greenland from either Canada nor Iceland nor Denmark. Indeed Greenland doesn't seem to be an appealing market for inter-country ferries. The linked site nevertheless suggests hopping on a cruise that includes Greenland on its list of destinations, as these are becoming more and more ...

Remember that the season for road work is whenever there's no snow on the ground. So overall you won't really be able to avoid it. If you use Google Maps directions, it will show you all of the known road construction points along your route. Ironically, at the moment there appears to be more road work on the I-70/I-35 route that you used to go to Iowa, ...

The only things that are different with the linked question are: Departure time of ferry from Labuan Bajo is at 09:00 Bemos going from Sape to Bima are waiting in ...

Château de Moidière is in the rural village Bonnefamille. In most rural places such as this one, public transport caters for schoolchildren and to some extent to residents, rarely to tourists. France doesn't have a central place to find transport information, and most of the information, when you manage to find it, is in French. For train schedules, visit ...

Yes, "Köpenhamn Ingerslevsgade DGI" is Copenhagen (and Göteborg is of course Gothenburg). Ingerslevsgade is where most long-distance buses from Copenhagen leave. It's near the central station, just around the corner from the outer end of the S-train platforms. There are frequent train services from the airport to the central station -- continue straight ...
